Far more important than skills, it is our mindset or how we think that makes success possible. While it is true that skills do matter, but what good are skills if a person does not have the right attitude? So, following the advice of admirable and influential people, we need to continue learning. And more than learning, it is also about putting what we learn into practice. But is that not what we all do anyway? Here is where the importance of personal development comes in. At its core, it is about learning how to think like the successful people. In doing so, we ingrain their habits and traits in our daily lives. Reading books and listening to speakers does not mean we are growing ourselves. For that to happen, we need to have the intention of changing ourselves. In other words, there is a conscious effort that we seek to improve all the time in everything we do.
